In this short video, sustainability expert, Dr. Martin Blake, explains how he and his wife, Yvonne Cuneo, have turned their 1901 Findhorn summer house into a cosy, warm home using renewable energy….
“There are not many people who can say that their electricity supplier owes them money on a regular basis, but that’s often the case for Martin Blake and his wife Yvonne Cuneo.
“The couple own a Findhorn-based property originally built in 1901 and renovated since their ownership.
“In spite of the property’s age and the fact that, before the renovation, water would often freeze in the living room during winter time, the couple have sympathetically restored the single-storey dwelling. The added, modern benefit being that by harnessing the use of renewable technologies, they are almost carbon-free and utility free.”
